Langley & Fort Langley, British Columbia: Wine, Dine, Stomp… and Celebrate the Fall

With the kids back at school and summer now likely to be a distant and vague memory, we have officially fallen into fall. But, of course, the cooler temperatures bring with it a perfect season to finally harvest – and benefit from – BC’s lush, verdant and fruitful landscape.  In fact, both Langley and Fort Langley, just east of Vancouver, offer up reason to celebrate the fall season with a fun grape-stomping event and Cranberry Festival.

Relaxing in Ainsworth Hot Springs and Visiting Nelson, British Columbia

After packing up our camping gear for our one night-only stay at Kokanee Creek (with promises to the kids that we’d make another longer trip here next time), we hit the road for our 20-minute drive to the Ainsworth Hot Springs – famed for its hot springs (of course) and extraordinary scenery, surrounded by the Purcell Mountains and Kootenay Lake.  But, in my humble opinion, what makes Ainsworth especially unique is its dazzling caves.
